Buffalo 8, Louisville 0 By Connor O’Brien The Buffalo Bisons beat the Louisville Bats last night by a score of 8-0. Matt Harvey, who was recently selected to play in the Triple-A All-Star Game, took the mound for the Bisons, looking to improve to 7-3. He was dominant. Harvey allowed just two hits and one walk in seven shutout innings. He also struck out nine. Harvey was on point the whole night, and could have [...]
It seems like the first two games in Chicago are just a blimp on the Mets memories these days as they continue to knock around the Dodgers. After a close game on Thursday, the Mets went back to one-sided ball games with an offensive explosion and another great start from R.A. Dickey. R.A. Dickey continues to put up big bids on being the All-Star Game starter, and tonight is no different. He even teased us [...]
Recap: Coming off an offensive explosion to avoid the sweep against the Chicgo Cubs, the Mets headed West to open up a three game set in LA. This game wasn’t quite as lopsided, but the Mets still did end up with the “W”, taking the opener of the Dodgers series by a final score of 3-2. Chris Young took the hill for his fifth start of the year and had the Dodgers number. Young was perfect [...]
On Tuesday I spent the day and night meeting up with the Brooklyn Cyclones who were in Hudson Valley to play the Renegades. I came, I saw, I left. I even beat the crowd out of the stadium parking lot without running anyone down as they scurried for their cars. The game may have left the home crowd thrilled and elated, but it left me feeling disappointed and deflated. The Clones were unable to hold [...]
Daniel Murphy hit two home runs, Scott Hairston hit a grand slam and the Mets offense had a banner day in their 17-1 win against the Cubs Game Recap Jonathon Niese had a great outing, allowing one run on eight hits while walking one and striking out six in seven innings. Niese consistently drew weak contact, and after allowing a second inning run, settled in to hold the Cubs scoreless for the next five innings. [...]
Well, we dropped this one to the Cubs 5-3 and these losses are getting hard to stomach. Summary So… Dillon Gee started this one and did not pitch horribly – but he did not pitch well enough to win on this Tuesday night. To be fair, it really was not a bad pitching performance, but the concept of pitching to a game comes into play here, and Gee just did not have his best stuff. [...]
After a rough Subway Series, the Mets traveled to Chicago to visit the great Wrigley Field to play the Cubs. Johan Santana started for the Mets and has been trying to regroup as he hasn’t pitched that spectacular since his no-hitter. He probably didn’t think he’d have a dueling war against the Cubs’ Travis Wood who only has one win this season and an ERA over four entering the game, but that was exactly what [...]
Think I could have crammed anymore chicken references into that title? Bottom line was this game was full of disappointments despite an amazin’ comeback by the Mets that was overshadowed by a night to be forgotten by R.A. Dickey, Miguel Batista and the entire ballclub. R.A. Dickey took the hill as one of the most talked-about stories in all of sports the past few days. LeBron James and R.A. Dickey hogged most of the airtime [...]
McHugh Gets Roughed Up By Durham Bulls By Connor O’Brien The Bisons fell to .500 once again as they were defeated by the Durham Bulls last night by a score of 11-5. Collin McHugh took the mound for his second Triple-A start for the Bisons. He had struggled in his debut in Norfolk, giving up four runs over five innings and earning a loss. Last night wasn’t much better. Durham jumped on McHugh early, as [...]
Pissed off, man. We drop this one to the evil empire 4 – 3. Summary This is a game where the stat line will not tell the whole story – for two different reasons. One, you can dominate the opposing team for 6 innings, but you always need to be afraid of that one blip on the radar that starts the snowball effect. And two, our Amazins’ are lacking in HR power, with about 58 [...]
Jon Niese started tonight to start the series against the Yankees in the second round of the Subway Series. In the last round against the Yankees, Niese gave up no earned runs in seven innings of work which the offense couldn’t capitalize on. This time Niese had some strong innings but also some troubling innings, but he always found a way out unscathed. Unfortunately, the Yankees started feeling like they were back at Yankee Stadium, [...]
